A blog dedicated to Napoleonic wargaming, painting 15mm to 28mm figures and, ultimately my ambition to recreate the "Battle of Quatre-Bras" in miniature using David Brown’s awesome rules set “General de Brigade” (2nd Edition).
The Wargame and Uniform plates featured on this site have been created using the following source material.
